Lake Erie State Park to Geneva-On-The-Lake 100 Miles


I ate the chicken sandwich and one of the honey buns I bought in Dunkirk for breakfast before we started out on our first 100-mile day.  We get the 100 because we went off route a little over 1.5 miles for breakfast in Westfield.  There was supposed to have been a place about a quart mile off line but it was permanently closed down.  But we saw a local walking on the side of road that told us about the diner in Westfield. We stopped at a family owned dinner instead of going to McDonalds.

When we left Westfield we had a strong tail wind which blew us back to the route. We crossed into the state of Pennsylvania.  


At rest stop one, most of the rest of the team found a diner that had great cinnamon rolls  but we didn’t complain.

Before the last rest stop at Conneaut we crossed into Ohio.


As we entered Conneaut we stopped at White Turkey Drive-In.  I had a root-beer float and a Big Ed’s hamburger.

This being our first 100 mile ride we conserved our energy the best we could.  We also took advantage of food at rest stops 2 and 3. We rode most of the day parallel with Lake Erie.  We definitely knew we had ridden 100 miles once we got to Geneva-On-The-Lake.

This was a milestone point in another way.  We just completed the first 1000 miles of our ride.  Our route leader did some outstanding art work.

      I plan on riding to Logan for my 50th high school graduation reunion. Would like to continue the ride on up to see you guys. Can Kye and I find a soft bed for a night. This will be on Mother’s Day weekend.

    This ride seems to be the most grueling of the 3 you’ve been on. Prayers for safety! God bless you.
